Another One Bites the Dust: Tyler Moore’s Bizarre Scooter Injury
You may have heard: The Florida Gators have had to deal with an obscene amount of season-ending injuries to critical players this season.
Now, there’s an eighth player — and sixth starter — to add to the list.
Offensive tackle Tyler Moore, who moved out left in last week’s 23-20 loss to Georgia, broke his right arm on Tuesday night in a scooter injury.
According to the Tampa Bay Times’ John C. Cotey, the 6-5, 320-pound offensive lineman lost control of his scooter on a wet sidewalk. He fell and broke his arm.
Moore had to have routine surgery with some pins in his arm, Cotey said.
He has two years of eligibility left as a Gator.
Will Muschamp confirmed the injury on Wednesday, saying the compound fracture of Moore’s elbow would knock him out for the season. A timetable won’t be confirmed until after surgery, Muschamp said.
Max Garcia will slide into Moore’s place with Kyle Koel and Ian Silberman taking over at left guard, according to Gatorzone.com’s Scott Carter.Another One Bites the Dust: Tyler Moore's Bizarre Scooter Injury by Taylor Gaines
